Encyclopedia Brown - Childrens Classic Mystery Challenge

On Saturday I finished reading Encyclopedia Brown Super Sleuth by Donald J. Sobol. Here are my favorite chapters: 1.The Case of the Headless Ghost There is a bully that lives in Encyclopedia's town named Bugs. Bugs is tricking all the kids that there is a headless ghost. Bugs is making kids pay a 10 cents to look in the window to see the ghost or pay 25 cents to go in and talk to the ghost.

2. The Case of the Disappearring Hundreds Encyclopedia and his helper Sally are spendingthe afternoon with Mr. O' Hara whoowns a drugstore. Earlier that morning Mr. O' Hara got 3 100 dollar bills from the bank. Somebody that works at the drugstore stole the money. Mr. O'Hara already asked them if they stole the money and all of them said no. Here are the other chapters in this book:

The Case of the Hollow Tree, The Case of the Stolen Moonstone, The Case of the Patriotic Volunteer, The Case of the Stolen Watch, The Case of the Gym Bag, The Case of the Supercomputer Brain, The Case of the Giggling Goldilocks, And The Case of Shoeless Sam. I liked this book because I liked to try to solve the case by myself. I figured out 3 of the chapters by myself. If you like to solve mysteries read Encyclopedia Brown Super Sleuth.

This is also a book I read for the Childrens Classic Mystery Challenge.

Miss Fannie's Hat

Last night I read Miss Fannie's Hat by Jan Karon. Miss Fannie is 99 and has a closet full of hats. Everybody loves Miss Fannie's hats including her friends. Miss Fannie's pastor asks for a hat to raise money to fix stuff for the church. Miss Fannie gives her Easter hat to the church and it raises a lot of money to help fix the bell at church and put on a new roof. I liked this book because I think it is cute and I like the part when Miss Fannie brings back memories of all her hats.

How Deep Is the Sea?

I just finished reading How Deep is the Sea by Anna Milbourne and Serena Riglietti. Pipkin is a penguin who is wondering how deep is the sea. His mom sends Pipkin down to see how deep the sea is. On the way Pipkin meets two predators. Pipkin finds a submarine and gets to go to the bottom of the sea. I think this book is cool because at the end there is a poster that tells the answer.


Edwina the Dinosaur Who Didn't Know She Was Extinct is one of my favorite books by Mo Willems. Edwina was a dinosour that everyone liked except Reginald Von Hoobie Doobie. Reginald Von Hoobie Doobie says that Edwina should be extinct. In the end Edwina bakes cookies for Reginald Von Hoobie Doobie. I really liked this book because I think it is funny.
